Mount Taranaki is 'almost certain' to erupt and cause mass devastation
The mountain is on the North Island's west coast in the Egmont National Park
A moderate to large eruption has occurred every 500 years - the last in 1655
New Zealand's Mount Taranaki is 'almost certain' to erupt in coming years and cause mass devastation to its nearby townships, experts have warned.
The chances of the volcano, on the west coast of the North Island, erupting within the next 50 years and 'producing volcanic hazards' is extremely likely, authorities said.
'An eruption of Mount Taranaki is not a matter of 'if', it is a matter of 'when',' a report on the region's latest five-year Civil Defence plan stated.
'An eruption of Mount Taranaki could produce volcanic hazards such as tephra falls, pyroclastic density currents, lava flows, lahars, flooding, debris avalanches, sector collapses, lightning and volcanic gases.'
